    I've barely put any effort in and there's no chance of me preparing for maths, physics and psychology exams next week in only a few days. GCSE's were much easier and since everyone over exaggerated GCSE's I assumed the same for A levels. I done pretty well in GCSE's for barely any revision.

    With barely any time left I do plan on doing my best. However there's a very slim chance of me getting through this year realistically. My sixth form has a requirement of CCD to go into year 13 but throughout the year with no revision I have been getting E's and D's. I don't have a plan for the scenario of me failing my exams. I want to redo maths, physics and psychology but I don't even know if I can do these subjects elsewhere. I predict myself possibly earning a CED or CEE.

    What can I do?? I'm so used to having luck on my side when it comes to stuff like this but it has run out :/

    Well it was your own fault really. The best you can do is find past paper questions and do them. Try some from other exam boards as well to broaden your thinking skills. At this point there's not much point in going over notes apart from the new spec stuff. Just do questions until you get the feel for exam technique and you can probably get BBB from this alone quite easily.

    Of course, if you continue to put no effort in you're not going anywhere.
